Exacq at ASIS 2012

Exacq at ASIS International 2012ASIS International 2012 just wrapped up in Philadelphia. It was a very good tradeshow for us. Although show attendance was perceived to be down by some accounts, the Exacq booth was very busy the entire show.

exacqVision 5In our booth at ASIS 2012 was the first showing of exacqVision 5, the latest version of our exacqVision Video Management Software, which will be released September 17. One of the key features in Version 5 is Multistreaming support. Multistreaming allows the ability to set multiple, independent video streams from the IP camera. Each stream can be set at different frame rates, resolution and quality level, ideal if you require remote viewing over a limited-bandwidth connection, but want to retain the highest resolution for recording and local viewing. Up to four streams per camera can be selected, depending on the IP camera model.  In addition, up to eight ‘Region of Interest’ streams can be setup on select Arecont Vision cameras, allowing for true cropping of individual, independent streams, and a full realization of the benefits of multi-megapixel cameras.

With exacqVision Multistreaming, all streams can be recorded, viewed live, saved to views, exported, and available in search and playback. No additional licensing is required; the standard exacqVision camera license enables up to four video streams, and up to eight Region of Interest streams are available on Arecont Vision cameras. Supported IP cameras for multistreaming in Version 5 include Axis, Arecont Vision, Panasonic and ACTi, with more coming. Over 240 IP camera models will be supported in multistreaming in this release, with more coming. Multistreaming is supported in exacqVision Pro, Enterprise, and Edge.

Other features in Version 5 shown included a vastly faster exacqVision client, with full processor multithreading support, providing a smoothness and fluidity of video display that is up to 6x faster than previous clients. Search speed is also improved, providing a 2x speed improvement in downloading searched video. A new Auto Export feature allows for automated backups to user-selected storage.

exacqVision Edge, the full VMS running on an IP camera, was in full force at this years show. In addition to supporting Axis IP cameras, two new IP camera Edge platforms were added in Version 5: IQeye and ISD.

Exacq at ISC West 2012

Exacq at ISC West 2012ISC West 2012 just wrapped up in Las Vegas. It was a busy and successful show for us. Our new, larger booth enjoyed extremely heavy traffic throughout the three-day show; our products were on display in a number of third-party integration partner booths, and we previewed new products, including:

exacqVision Edge Our new exacqVision Edge product, a complete Enterprise VMS server running on an IP camera, was featured. Initially supporting Axis IP cameras with ARTPEC 3 & 4 processors, exacqVision Edge loads directly onto the IP camera. Edge provides complete exacqVision Enterprise functionality without the need for an external server. Edge cameras appear in the camera tree just like cameras from any other server, and can be mixed and matched with existing exacqVision servers. Ideal for add-on cameras to existing systems where additional servers are too costly or not practical, for wireless outdoor cameras where consistent network connectivity is an issue, for short-term or covert deployment where there is no network connectivity, and for installations requiring distributed storage for high reliability. Ease of deployment for integrators: install and configure exacqVision Edge at the shop, then simply ship the cameras to the site for mounting and POE connection to network.

ISC West 2012
